I was focusing on the clouds again in this piece and when they were at a point I liked, I added the mountain with minglings of cobalt blue and quin burnt orange. Then I scraped away ridges and texturing with the end of chiseled paint brush.
I worked on this one while gallery sitting today down at the In the Mix show. There are two weeks left of it, and business was steady for a lot of the time. Made some sales of prints and cards which was nice, but I especially enjoyed talking to the people who made it down to see the show!
The technique of cloud building is just like other ways of showing roundness: soft edges, dark lines blending away, light on one side. Similar to what I used to make the rose painting earlier this week.
I had done two wet in wet skies, this one with clouds, and the other with a smooth blending of blues/roses/yellows near horizon. That became something TOTALLY different! come back tomorrow to see it…thanks for stopping by!
